What’s new in the OUTvest world?

Back to Money advice
26 July 2018
It’s been a busy three months, thinking of and building solutions to provide all South Africans with access to high quality investment advice. We have also been busy trying to make the investment world more accessible and easier to understand for more South Africans. As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding.
So what have we actually done at OUTvest to move towards achieving these goals?

Well, for starters, we have completely taken the frustration out of FICA. Gone are the days of having to upload a copy of your proof of address or ID. With OUTvest it is as simple as just providing us with your details.

We will not ask you to jump through hoops to prove who you are. We will do the jumping for you by making use of new, advanced validation techniques. I mean, seriously, what does a copy of an ID really prove? This is such a 1990s solution.

Also, we have made it really, really simple for OUTsurance clients to invest their OUTbonus with us. With just a couple of clicks your OUTbonus can be invested into an investment goal and can grow even more!

Have you checked out our blog - Money Advice? If you haven’t, you definitely should. You’ll find great financial advice in articles published here, written by our own qualified financial advisors, as well as reputable financial coaches like Kristia van Heerden from JustOneLap.

In addition to the above, we also rolled out the following:

  • We updated our calculators with new estimates to help you determine the cost of certain goals, like a wedding or education. Check our investment calculators out.
  • We changed the look and feel of your personal dashboard to make it more user-friendly. For example, you can now also access your tax certificates for your February 2018 return in your dashboard.
  • We have also upgraded our app to make it more stable and faster. Android users especially should experience a way smoother experience. We’re really proud of our app. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, simply search for OUTvest in the Apple App store or on Google Play.

That’s about it from my side. If you have any ideas or things that you want to see from us, feel free to drop us a comment on our website or via the app. You can also reach us via Twitter or Facebook.

Happy investing!
